We will be hosting Helpx again in 2017 and we offer a double room with en-suite bathroom, plus meals, for 20 hours work per person per week, based on working 9.00 to 13.00 five days. We have about an acre of ground at home, plus we have another acre and a half 10 mins walk away. We especially enjoy gardening, both flowers and vegetables. We welcome help with garden work, such as outdoor painting, weeding, and mending, as well as daily care for the animals. The work will often involve active jobs, e.g. cutting brambles and wood, moving manure, digging etc, so you need a reasonable level of mobility/fitness, and it is helpful (but not at all essential) if you are willing to use power tools, such as strimmer and mower! If you would like to join us for a while you will need working clothes and suitable outdoor working footwear, as we still work if the rain is not too heavy! However, if the weather is too bad to work outdoors, ordinary domestic jobs such as housework may be involved, too. If you like to cook that is a bonus!
Because this is our home, not a business, we host for NO MORE THAN 2 WEEKS at one time. There is a pub 150 metres away, a limited bus service from the pub to town (about 20/30 mins), and we are about 15 mins walk to a lovely cliff path, with views over the other islands, leading to a pretty bay good for swimming, with cafes. We have no TV! NON SMOKING. A cat inside, two cows outside and some chickens around the garden. We have been adopted by some wild ducks too!
